Public and Scientific Community Education

Education and outreach to the public and scientific communities are a vital piece of the Oiled Wildlife Care Network’s (OWCN) activities.

A few examples of OWCN outreach projects include:

  • Collaborating on development of national and international oiled animal care standards and trainings,
  • Educating stakeholders through presentations, a weekly blog entry, newsletters and other updates,
  • Consulting with oil spill responders worldwide, and
  • Supporting a K-12 environmental outreach program.
